"Despite facing both market and operational headwinds during the quarter, Diamond was able to record adjusted earnings per share of $0.16," said Marc Edwards, President and Chief Executive Officer.
Results for the second quarter were significantly impacted by impairment charges and related taxes of $612 million, or $4.46 per diluted share, primarily relating to the carrying value of eight semisubmersible rigs and associated inventory.
Operational efficiency of the Company's fleet was 92.7% in the second quarter, compared to 98.2% in the first quarter of 2016. The decline in operational efficiency was primarily driven by issues experienced within the ultra-deepwater floater category, specifically as it relates to four unplanned retrievals of blowout preventers.
Utilization in the deep-water segment increased by 25% in the second quarter of 2016, compared to the first quarter of 2016. The increase was driven by the Ocean Apex beginning its 18-month contract with Woodside in Australia at a rate of $285,000 per day. The rig was recently awarded a three-month extension at $205,000 per day, which will keep the rig working until February 2018.
During the quarter, the Company elected to cold stack the Ocean Endeavor and Ocean Scepter. The Company's decision was guided by its desire to minimize costs associated with the rigs, while ensuring the rigs are preserved in such a manner as to enable a quick reactivation when the market recovers. Additionally, the Company intends to scrap the Ocean Quest and Ocean Star.
As of June 30, 2016, the Company's total contracted backlog was $4.4 billion, which represents 28 rig years of work. Approximately 86% of the Company's available ultra-deepwater rig days for the remainder of 2016 are contracted with top tier customers.
Edwards also commented on the recently announced Helical Buoyancy™ riser joint development agreement with Trelleborg, stating, "This is another example of Diamond Offshore differentiating itself in an oversupplied market. As with our Pressure Control by the Hour™ service model, Diamond Offshore is providing the industry with thought leadership to drive efficiencies and lower the cost of operating offshore."
Reflecting on the market, Edwards went on to say, "Although the market continues to be challenged, our focus is on striking a balance between controlling costs and laying the foundation to ensure Diamond Offshore is well positioned for the recovery."

AVERAGE DAYRATE, UTILIZATION AND OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY
(Dayrate in thousands)
Average dayrate is defined as contract drilling revenue for all of the specified rigs in our fleet per revenue earning day. A revenue earning day is defined as a 24-hour period during which a rig earns a dayrate after commencement of operations and excludes mobilization, demobilization and contract preparation days.
Utilization is calculated as the ratio of total revenue-earning days divided by the total calendar days in the period for all specified rigs in our fleet (including cold-stacked rigs, but excluding rigs under construction). As of June 30, 2016, our cold-stacked rigs included four ultra-deepwater semisubmersibles, four deepwater semisubmersibles, four mid-water semisubmersibles and five jack-up rigs.
Operational efficiency is calculated as the ratio of total revenue-earning days divided by the sum of total revenue-earning days plus the number of days (or portions thereof) associated with unanticipated equipment downtime.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)
To supplement the Company's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, this press release provides investors with adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that these measures provide meaningful information about the Company's performance by excluding certain charges that may not be indicative of the Company's ongoing operating results. This allows investors and others to better compare the company's financial results across previous and subsequent accounting periods and to those of peer companies and to better understand the long-term performance of the Company. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered to be a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
